Scam Description

Scammer said I was approved for a loan for 5000 with 36 monthly payments for $151.36. They also suggested I confirm my bank account information online. In which I refused. So they sent me a google doc form to complete. When I saw on the form it was requesting my bank online userid and password I told them I was not comfortable with giving access to my account. The person said it was part of the verification process. And he would send me the loan documents via email to confirm. I received the documents and noticed one of the statements stated they would send me $500 – $2000 as initiation and I would be required to send it back before they released the $5000 I was approved for. Other flags the grammar was bad in the loan documents and google doc form, and the fake google email account(not a business email). I told the fake loan officer I would passed. And blocked his number and email addressed from accessing me.
